I bought my pc a month ago.
I was about to change my graphics card for the first time, for a new one I had bought. I shut my pc off and just to play safe I thought I would shut the power on my PSU off too, before unplugging the power cable.
Since there was no black switch on the back (you know, those switches with a - O) I assumed the red switch must have been it so I flicked it and all I heard was a loud "POP" and a yellow flash.
I discovered that switch was used to change the voltage...
since I live in Europe I had switched it from 230V to 115V
Again, I must be the stupidest person on the planet, for not even having thought I had never needed to flick that switch EVER before, when I first bought it and plugged it in.
I didn't touch my PC after that.
Since it has a repair warranty I already took it to the store where I bought it and am awaiting for them to repair my pc...
Now on to the real question!:
Would the PSU manage to fry my other components? My PC was already turned off, beforehand, meaning no components were being powered at that time. Are they fine?
